    Question How deep can you build directories?

    Right now I am constructing a larger website. It will have many sections and many pages and I would like to break it off into many directories to make it easy to handle. Has anyone had any trouble with structuring a site with deep directories (like exp/exp22/exp52/images/gif.fig)?

    Thanks!

    Have you run into problems? I have directions this deep: /folder/1/2/3, but imagine you could go farther.

    No, I haven't had any problems. I just wanted to ask before I start, so I don't get surprised and have to restrucure things...

    Thanks, though, I won't have to go more than four folders deep (I think), so your answer helped.

    The operating system will have no problem handling 4, 5, 6, even 100 directory levels. It might start to get a bit over-organized at 5 or 6 though, depending on how much data you have.
